Looking for a former roommate, an old trial team photo or a feature about a professor or classmate from the past 25 years?
The Jurist, Wake Forest Law’s alumni magazine, is now available online in its entirety on DigitalNC, a service of the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center. Each publication since the first issue, which was released in the spring of 1971, can be accessed digitally and is searchable, thanks in large part to the efforts of Alan Keely, associate director for Collection Services and Systems for the Wake Forest Law Library, who was instrumental throughout the process, says Jurist Editor Lisa Snedeker.
DigitalNC made the announcement on its blog on Jan. 19, 2017: “These campus publications document the updates about the goings on Wake Forest School of Law, the accomplishments of alums, and various information about the institution and the field of law generally. These documents could be useful for research.
“The Jurist was published in the fall and spring semester each year until two years ago when it went to once a year.”
The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center is a statewide digitization and digital publishing program housed in the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Center provides libraries, archives, museums, historical societies and other cultural heritage institutions with the opportunity to promote and increase access to their collections through digitization. The Center is supported in part by the State Library of North Carolina.
